I recently had the "privilege" of attending a Stores OnLine presentation in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Boy oh boy, are these guys looking for fresh meat for their meat grinder. These guys said in the beginning of the all-day event that they would take all of our questions, but that they "seriously doubted we would have any after the presentation was over."
The fact is, they NEVER answered ANY questions that ANYBODY had asked, EVER.
RIDICULOUS!!! They treated people like kids and cows - it'ld be better off to be a cow because then at least you could leave something BEHIND YOU TO TELL THEM HOW YOU FELT...
Fortunately, since I had read the comments on your site and other sites before my friend and I attended this lightly-disguised farce-for-funds dog-and-pony show, neither of us got hooked. But boy do I feel sorry for the older people I saw writing checks for upwards of $6,000, knowing they would NEVER get the help they needed. That must be why Stores Online acronym is "SOL" (because if you give them your money you're going to be "S--t Out of Luck."
What a shame. What a shame prestigious hotel chains like the Wyndham/Marriott in Colorado Springs actually would let a group like this come and suck so many poor people right into their twin windbags of no truth and no hope. What a shame.
People ought to be held responsible for things like this.
And also, out of the 15 wannabbees that were running around like chickens with their heads cut off throughout the seminar, trying to see which fishes were hooked the deepest, I only saw TWO females. I asked one of the soul-less devils why that was: "Oh, it's the travel...women don't like to travel..."
WHAT? Gimme a break! And get me away from Stores OnLine!!!
Oh, they also tell you halfway through morning that "there are so many people here today, we may not be able to see all of you... but don't get mad at Stores Online, just because we're so popular...You won't go out and complain about this, will you?" (worked up audience says, "No..."). Poor suckers.
Thanks to all of you who explained there are REAL ways and REAL products and alternatives to help people establish themselves on the net.
Also, do a search for Google's anti-search-manipulation policies and efforts. Getting one's website to come up top of the list is not as easy as they make it seem. And apparently search engines FROWN on the kind of manipulation that Stores Online teaches its "clients."
What a bunch of snakes in the grass!
